OCEAN GATE – Superintendent Melanie Patterson of Ocean Gate School announced that grades 3 and 4 will be learning remotely for 14 days.
This decision was made as a result of two new COVID-19 cases identified in the school. To decrease potential exposure, grades 3 and 4 will learn virtually and are expected to return to in-person learning by February 22.
Siblings of students in grades 3 and 4 do not have to quarantine unless they have symptoms, test positive or have someone in their house who tests positive. Families are asked to closely monitor children for symptoms.
No changes will be made for students in grades PK, K, 1, 2, 5 and 6. The school is working closely with the Ocean County Health Department for all COVID-19 matters.
